Well, we did get our first snow, not much but it is cold! The snow started around midnight, so I guess it snowed on and off during the night. Temperature this morning on the mountain at 7:00 AM was 28 degrees and the wind is blowing about 25 mph. Thursday late afternoon I had spotted icicles along the trail so I decided this morning to hike down up there.
Here are the icicles, it’s hard to tell in the picture but they are about 2-3 feet long.
It’s 8:50 AM now and the road is starting to melt so looks like we can get out today if we need too!
Enjoy your weekend!

Wow, snow and ice, the icicles are huge. I guess living in/near the mountains you are subject to extremes. Love that teardrop board.
We got a little snow, the wind is making it really cold! thank you
Those are some LONG icicles. That’s what I used to see in Maine but not in the South! 🙂
They are long, the other day when I spotted them they were only about 16 inches long!
Ahhhh, the first is always the most fun 🙂 it’s the continuation that becomes a bit tiring by, say, April 🙂
hugs and stay warm—Julie
Yes I agree!!
we got down into the high 30s here. had to finally give up my shorts and t-shirt for the morning and switch to sweats and long-sleeves. 🙂
The 30s is low for you this time of year! 🙂
That looks so cold! You still have a lot of green, and then to have snow, oh my! What is your elevation there?
Our snow didn’t hang around, thankfully. It’s no warmer today than it was last night but the sun is shining. 🙂
It was cold this morning, it has now warmed to 45 degrees. All the trees still had leaves, orange, yellow and reds, the green you see is mostly pine trees. Our elevation is 3126, snow is all gone now and sun is shining but we still have the wind! Have a great weekend Lindy! 🙂
Gorgeous photos, Michael. Love the icicles, especially. This, I believe, is the proverbial “shot across the bow.” It will be an unusually harsh winter. I know you and Deb are ready to enjoy it 😉 Best wishes, WG
If this is a sign of what is to come, I am not ready yet!
😉 A good pot of soup should get us through this one – then a break to prepare for the rest 😉
Debbie said they same thing!
Enjoying the pictures – really like the icicles!!
thank you Mildred! 🙂
How nice! We had a record 1st November here as it was really warm and sunny! Enjoy the frost!
Yes they are!
It isn’t often that you get snow before we do Michael. What weird weather! I hope you will see some warmth, and were able to get down the mountain.
I’d agree with you on that, it started around midnight Friday and snowed until around 7:30. All melted by noon except on the Northside, icicles are still there! 🙂
Wow! Lovely icicles. I know not many people think of snow and ice as lovely, but I do. 🙂
I do too and look forward to it, just don’t like the freezing rain and sleet!
Brrrr. I’m cold here in Columbia too. We had a cold windy rain which turned to massive snowflakes for about five minutes. We all enjoyed the pretty flakes but I am still cold.
I heard some areas of Columbia got 1-2 inches!
Wow, those are some very long icicles! You’ve had snow and we’ve had very few changing and/or fallen leaves here. Thanks for sharing your snow. And that’s a lovely cutting board, by the way. Hugs, N ❤
Hi Natalie! thank you, they are big icicles! Most all of our leaves are gone now! have a great evening!
Snow already! It is cold here about 40 degrees – but no snow – at least not yet. It definitely is cold enough for snow! I am so not ready for winter!!
Yes, kinda weird that we got snow this year but our weather has been colder than normal this fall!
I heard on the news that in the states of the first snow fell before the feast of thanksgiving 🙂 Greets
Yes, it was beautiful! 🙂
Such beautiful pictures! I especially like the one with frozen water fall- gorgeous!
thank you, that picture is not a waterfall, it is actually where a spring seeps out the side of the mountain. When it is cold there is always icicles there! 🙂
